Fallout from the Serial Murders of 10 Rillington Place

Reg Christie was a true serial killer; it seems unlikely that he failed to murder (after his second victim in 1944) for the next five years before killing Beryl Evans. Consideration should be given for examining unsolved British murders of women fitting Christie's M.O. for those "missing years" of criminal activity when he was at liberty and free to kill anytime he wished.

One of the first Native American tribes encountered by Europeans settling the eastern parts of North America were the Lenape, or Delaware, Indians.  Forced out of their ancestral homes, they moved west into Ohio, scattering throughout that territory.  One group took up residence in a place they named Hell Town-from there it was only a matter of time before most of these villagers were massacred by white Colonial militia during the American Revolution.

Presumed Serial Poisoner, Mary Ann Cotton

A poor working-class widow, Mary Ann Cotton has passed into history as a vicious serial poisoner, mercilessly killing her loved ones for financial gain.  She was vilified in the press most likely because of her station in life (as were more modern judicial victims, the early 1900s' Martha Rendell and the 1980s' Lindy Chamberlain of "the dingo ate my baby" infamy). Mary Ann's story, however, upon closer inspection may prove to be completely false; her execution may in fact have been one of history's more shameful miscarriages of justice.

Timothy John Evans & The Serial Murders of 10 Rillington Place

John Reginald Halliday Christie had killed two women in the early 1940s, burying their remains in his back yard. He got lucky in late 1949 when murdering the wife and infant daughter of a mildly retarded man, Tim Evans.
